Possible to get in the 7's, as mentioned condition of the engine and road.

my best is a 7.6 sec 0-60mph and 15.8sec 1/4 measured with a G-tech, standard engine with a pod (not shielded) and headers but standard zorst including a stuffed muffler. single spinner with 235/45 17" bridgestones but only about 1.5mm tread(read stuffed) and a full tank of gas(it seems to have better traction with just a little weight over the rear tyres. 116km's on the clock, oh and it's a manual. i've been experimenting with different shift points etc and launch rpm but i don't see much point in revving the engine over 4800rpm in anything above 1st gear as it makes it's peak power at 4700rpm and peak torque about 3800rpm (s1 VN)

It depends on the drivers weight too but if you can stall it up without wheelspin with just 15 liters in the tank and get a just right shift from first to 2nd you should be able to drop a 8.1 into the 7's. Another 5 rwkw will see you there :) so it's just a couple little tweaks away, mine never ran in the 8's anymore in it's final days, it was consitantly 6.9-7.15 on the gtech to 60mph.

That was with a ported throttle body and a few other things smoothened and lined up straighter than the factory made it. Opened up VS CAI and a chip also ran high 15.3's fairly often over the 1/4 mile, high 15.3's with a chip and 15.55 with the ATFY stock one. That was shifting at 5000-5200 rpm

the cars got about 155k but the engine is in good nik.
i stalled it up to about 2000rpm, my best time of 8.1 was bout 1/4 tank of petrol and min weight possible (sub taken out and no one in the car) but like immortality said before it has more traction with the weight at the back

I did a bogey time on a voice recorder:D Maybe just under 9sec first time then just under 8 second time. Would love a g-tech.
I got great grip now my old tyres would spin but the new ones are great for take off grip.

i'm 6ft 6" and weight 115kg. a little weight over the diff can't hurt, my best time of 15.8 sec 1/4 mile, 7.6 sec 0-60mph was with just a little wheel spin and shitty tyres. i'm hoping good tyres and LSD will drop those times a few ten's cause i'll be able to launch with more rpm and i might possibly go to a slightly shorter diff ratio, say maybe 3.23 or 3.46 as it's a daily driver and i don't want to eat to much into my fuel economy as petrol not getting any cheaper
